Ever since Shawn modified my M800 and added the custom Blue Lizard Binde I've wanted a Pelikan M1000 done in the same material! I picked up a green stripe 1000 earlier this year and we've talked about how he might be able to make this happen. The Blue Lizard material is not quite big enough to match the actual outer diameter of the original binde on the M1000. He looked at casting the blank in another material then turning it, at building up the surface with another material and then turning it, well long story short, I asked just how much too small is the outer diameter of the blue lizard blank. He said it is just barely smaller but he couldn't be sure if he went with the blank, as is, if the pen would post. Hey, if you know me, you know I don't post pens especially big pens like the M1000. So I said go for it! He's right it won't post but goodness it's beautiful, I love it!
Here are my M800 and new M1000 with Shawn Newton custom Blue Lizard Bindes!
